When it comes to face masks, I feel like I have little to zero knowledge and am definitely jumping on the multi-masking bandwagon slightly late here. So after reading numerous reviews about these L'Oreal face masks, it was only a matter of time I got my hands on all of them to try and see what the fuss was all about. I thought they were widely raved in the blogging world but on a recent trip to Boots, I realised how indeed popular they were being sold out in every single shop. Thank God for online shopping; I have now tried all 3 for a week or so and am ready to share my thoughts with you!
There are 3 masks in the pure clay range and each contains a powerful blend of three pure clays (Koalin, Montmorillonite, and Ghassoul) and its own unique natural ingredient to reveal clear, glowy and beautiful skin. The Purity Mask deeply purifies and mattifies, the Detox Mask cleanses and clarifies, and the Glow Mask brightens as well as exfoliates. Knowing these basics about each you can find the perfect mask for your skin, or do what I did and multi-mask for the ultimate bespoke skincare routine. Applicable to all, I apply each on clean skin after I've showered and removed all traces of make-up and dirt. A thin layer goes onto my face, and I leave them to dry for approximately 10-15 minutes, upon which I remove with warm water and finalise with some toner. I repeat this process 3 times a week to maximise results.
DETOX CLAY MASK
This is my favourite out of them, despite its colour which at first did scare me slightly but I needn't have worried one bit. With a combination of 3 pure clays and charcoal, which acts like a magnet to remove impurities, this mask yields clarified and beautified skin without drying it out. After the first use, my skin was already purer and cleaner and a week of use made my skin feel a lot fresher and luminous, and with less clogged up and visible pores. I like applying this on the very top of my forehead and chin.
PURITY CLAY MASK
Containing Eucalyptus, this mask works deep into the pores to reveal purified matte-looking skin. I apply this on my t-zone given that's where my skin gets the oiliest and shiniest and, despite its first tingling sensation this does a good job at absorbing impurities and excess sebum. I've noticed fewer blackheads on my nose as well which is always a huge plus.
GLOW CLAY MASK
Red Algae extract is aimed at providing bright and even skin and I love how its texture feels. This is the one that takes the longest to try and given I apply this to most of my face (cheeks, around lips and under the eyes), I do have to be careful not to make a mess. This works extremely well at illuminating the dull skin around the lip area and exfoliating away my uneven skin tone. My skin texture feels refined after one week use and L'Oreal claims that with use after use, an even healthy glow is what I will achieve and I’m definitely looking forward to it.
All in all, if you're in the market for a new face mask or three (and are quite bored with the Lush ones because I know I am), these are affordable and work incredibly well for this multi-masking trend that is taking the beauty world by storm. Each clay mask is creamy, rich and easy to apply. Working them into the skin is a therapy in itself and upon removal, they leave my complexion brightened, cleansed and with a healthy-looking glow; what's not to love? I now look forward to facial days and even mum loves these (you would have seen us sporting these last night if you follow me on either Snapchat @pamsscalfiblog or Instagram @pamella_scalfi).
The L'Oreal Pure Clay Detox, Glow & Purity Masks are priced at £7.99 each at Boots (but they're currently on offer for £5.00 each) so do your skin a favour and grab them all. These are quite possibly my favourite launch of the year so far and I'm excited to have found something that will work all year round for clear and trouble-free skin.
Tell me, have you tried these yet? Are you fan of face masks?
